“You lied to me for months because of Gorbachev?”
Any argument that contains this sentence is not one that’s going to be resolved easily. With only two more episodes after this before The Americans complete their mission once and for all, Philip has decided to come clean to Elizabeth. He confesses that he has been leaking information about her activities to Oleg Burov — some guy from back home who says The Center is trying to undermine the U.S.S.R. leadership.
She absorbs this with a lot of heavy silence.
“What did you tell him?”
“I told him you’re the most dedicated, loyal person ever to serve the organization. I told him about the sensor. I told him you were looking into one of our negotiators that you thought was a traitor.”

After weeks of tension, it’s now even more grueling that Philip and Elizabeth are back on the same side. “Harvest” may be one of the most tense episodes of the entire series, and with only a handful left, it sets the stage for a truly dark finale.
Philip has pledged to join Elizabeth and her accomplice Marilyn in Chicago, where they are seeking to extricate a fellow undercover Russian who has been detected and is under constant surveillance by the FBI under their operation codename “Harvest.”
But the job is overwhelming, and they can’t do it with just the two of them. They don’t think they’ll save their target. They’re not even sure they’ll survive themselves.

The world is collapsing around Philip and Elizabeth and they are too busy warring with each other to even realize it. The deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Teacup has ignited a counter-espionage wildfire in the FBI, and they’ve connected more dots than ever before about the covert Soviet operation in the United States.
Philip and Elizabeth are tearing their relationship apart just when they need each other the most.
We begin with Philip dropping a heaping helping of judgment on Elizabeth. “Stan came by. He was very upset about the couple murdered right in front of their 7-year-old kid.”
“I didn’t do it in front of their kid. He was in another room. I didn’t see him,” Elizabeth shoots back.
“He saw them. Covered in blood.”
“What do you want me to say?” Continue reading The Americans recap: Rififi
